Souls Hackers 2 is a brand new JRPG from Atlus. This is being released on all major platforms save for the Nintendo Switch. It is a successor to the first Soul Hackers that was released exclusively on the Nintendo 3DS.
Here is some information on the game taken from the official Steam page.
Amidst the glimmer of neon lights, technological advancement causes humans to be consumed by commercial convenience. In the shadows, a war between the Yatagarasu and the Phantom Society is brewing, Devil Summoners who harness the otherworldly powers of “Demons”.
Existing in the secret sea of humanity’s data, a digital hivemind has evolved into sentience: Aion. Observing humankind from afar, Aion calculates that a world-ending disaster is imminent and creates two agents to combat against it: Ringo and Figue.
Together, these agents of Aion must investigate and prevent a butterfly effect that will lead to the end of the world.
- Investigate the end of the world as Ringo, an agent of Aion tasked with saving humanity from an apocalypse.
- Explore a supernatural RPG with stylish summoners and dark dangers lurking under the neon lights of a cyberpunk Japan.
- Amass demons and unlock fusion combinations to create new, stronger demon allies, using their lethal abilities for incredible assaults on your foes.
- Strengthen the bonds with your teammates and dive deeper into their souls, reliving their last adventures and discovering the truth of their stories and yours.
Soul Hackers 2 is a spin-off based on the Shin Megami Tensei series. Other spin-offs from the same franchise include Persona, which has proven to be a major hit worldwide.
